 Barber Vintage Festival 2011 

Congratulations to Dave Rosenbery, our winner in the Motorcycle Classics/Barber Vintage Festival Sweepstakes! A long-time Motorcycle Classics reader and an avid vintage bike fan, Dave is getting ready to head from his Illinois home to Leeds, Ala., for his first visit to the incredible Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum and the 7th Annual Barber Vintage Festival.

A mechanic and a life-long rider, Dave’s owned more than a few interesting motorcycles, including Yamaha RDs, a Cushman scooter and an MV Agusta 750S America! His current ride is a 2007 Triumph Tiger, a brand he’s particularly fond of having previously owned a 1967 500 and a 1967 Bonneville. And he’s more than a little thrilled to be heading to Barber, a place he’s wanted to visit but hasn’t been able to just yet. “I’m semi-retired but still working,” Dave tells us, “but I’ve never had the extra money to go down there.”

Well, now he is going to Barber, as the guest of the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, who are providing him with tickets for the three-day festival, passes to the museum and its 900-plus collection of motorcycles, two front row tickets to Auctions America’s Barber Motorcycle Auction, three nights lodging, plus a pair of Barber Vintage Festival T-shirts and caps.

We’ll catch up with Dave at Barber, and let this be a lesson to you, because the next time we run a sweepstakes, it could be you heading down for a free weekend at the Barber Vintage Festival! See you at Barber! – Richard Backus
